RUGBY legend Paul O’Connell and GAA president John Horan have launched Team Limerick Clean-Up.

Sponsored by the JP McManus Benevolent Fund, TLC is in its sixth year now and takes place on Good Friday, April 10th this year.

The launch took place in the LIT Gaelic Grounds with members from underage hurling and football teams, from Kildimo-Pallaskenry GAA Club and St. Patrick’s GAA Club.

Last year’s record-breaking participation figures exceeded 20,000 volunteers, with over 600 groups from across the county. 470 of these held tea and coffee gatherings to celebrate.

Since 2015, 400 tonnes of litter has been gathered by volunteers and Mr Binman.

Commenting on Team Limerick Clean-Up 6, GAA President John Horan said; “Team limerick Clean-Up has been going from strength to strength over the last six years.

“It is a wonderful community event which brings groups from every walk of life together for one cause. I am honoured to be here today to launch this year’s edition of TLC. I would encourage everyone to sign up this year, get involved and continue the good work!”
